Well done and welcome to the group. Looks lovely and straight, it's amazing that after all these years it's survived so well.

Please consider repairing what you have, replacing what might be missing and leaving the serviceable alone. By all means recondition the mechanicals but leave the rest.

Kind regards from a below zero Dorset, England.

That looks a good find, very straight, good luck with it. 1953 Aussie 80ís are cool but then again Iím biased  :smiley:

Hi

I have 36661554, so 652 cars before yours.

Good luck with the restoration.
